Blended Axes in Tableau

Blended Axes:-

In Blended Axes all the Measures are combinedly analyzed in Single Axes,Single Pane and with the Single Marks Card.

  • Measures can share a single axis so that all the marks are shown in a single pane. 
  • For example, the view below shows quarterly sales and profit on a shared axis

  • To blend multiple measures, simply drag 2nd measure(Profit) and drop it onto an existing axis(Sales Axis).

  • Blending measures uses the Measure Names and Measure Values fields, which are auto-generated fields that contain all of the measure names in your data source and all of the  measure values
  • The shared axis is created using the Measure Values field. The Measure Names field is added to the Color shelf so that a line is drawn for each measure. 
  • Blending axes is most appropriate when comparing measures that have a similar scale and units.
  •  If the scales of the two measures are drastically different, the trends may be distorted.
